I am able to move the Ask Box widget to a few spots, but I would really like it just above the main navigation tabs.

I am not a strong backend programmer but I'm no stranger to modifying php.

Any ideas on this?

First read abou advanced themes, its very easy

http://www.question2answer.org/themes.php#advanced

Second copy the 2 functions from qa-theme-base.php from the include directory into Your advanced theme-

 

function body_content()
{
$this->body_prefix();
$this->notices();
 
$this->output('<DIV CLASS="qa-body-wrapper">', '');
// THE FOLLOWING LINE IS CHANGED
//$this->widgets('full', 'top');
$this->header();
$this->widgets('full', 'high');
$this->sidepanel();
$this->main();
$this->widgets('full', 'low');
$this->footer();
$this->widgets('full', 'bottom');
 
$this->output('</DIV> <!-- END body-wrapper -->');
 
$this->body_suffix();
}
 
 
 
and the function
 
 
 
function header()
{
$this->output('<DIV CLASS="qa-header">');
 
$this->logo();
$this->nav_user_search();
// THE FOLLOWING LINE IS ADDED
$this->widgets('full', 'top');
$this->nav_main_sub();
$this->header_clear();
 
$this->output('</DIV> <!-- END qa-header -->', '');
}
 
 
You see the changes I made //....
 
That should do the trick.
If still remain some problems please respond again..
Now the location of the top widget is just above the main nav and not longer above the header..

Exactly 2 months later and finally got to get back to this project! And it worked! Thanks for the help. It also gave me some insight to how this all works.
